CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) – San Diego County's iconic flower bloom, known as the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, is now open for the season.

The event's theme, "Live Colorfully," invites visitors via the rainbow of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus, a flower known for its "large, double-petaled blooms that sit atop tall, straight stems." The 55 acres have served as a stunning backdrop that immerses visitors in the floral splendor.

"Visitors can't help but smile here," says Fred Clarke, General Manager of The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch. "We are, first and foremost, a sustainable working farm, and each spring, The Flower Fields invites our visitors to 'live colorfully' via our rainbow of ranunculus. It is our distinct honor to serve as a multihued backdrop to so many family trips, romantic dates, and even proposals and weddings. We look forward to all the memories in the making that 2023 holds."
